Here's my version of the so called HCG diet

What is HCG?
I seriously do not know.
Hahahah..
But of course, I googled it and I studied it, and I made notes of it.
Lets keep it easy to understand, it is a low calorie dietary plan.
Now, being a naive person that I am, I do not calculate calories.
Heck, for me it is just impossible to note on each calorie intake.
So therefore, I calculate weight.
Hey, if u want to loose your weight, so, it's fair that you weigh your food intake.
Comprendo?

How did I ever began my journey of loosing weight?
Through reading Redmummy's blog and her achievements.
I'm not gonna lie.
I envied her.

Now that I made the intro, lets get to the core part.
No carbs 
No sugar
I will not elaborate on this coz I know you readers are all grown up, so, stop whining!

Must take minimum of 3L plain water a day
And THREE bijik fruits per day for your body sugar needs
But fruits are limited to either apples/ pear/ guava/ strawberries/ berries/ sour mangoes only
No pisang (banana)
No mempelam manis (sweet mangoes)
No durian
No watermelon
No limau mandarin (oranges)
No matter how naturally grown they are, these fruits listed are high in calories and sugar content.

Just eat proteins and vegetables
Safe if u can cook them yourselves
As u need to control the oil usage.

Steamed shrimp with fresh garden salad, baby tomatoes, capsicum, lemon squeeze, salt and pepper.
Your first 25 days (Day 1 - Day 25th)
Must not use oil at all when cooking. 
No milk, eggs, and cheese too.
No tomato sauce
No chilli sauce
No mayonaise
No thousand island 
No mustard
No kicap! (soy sauce)
These all have high sugar and oil content!
Weigh your proteins intake.
It should be about only 300gm - 400gm.
You can easily estimate from the market packaging.
Not that hard when you get use to it, just the size of your palm, well, my palm that is.
And make sure you remove all the skins and fats too.
You can take Chicken / Beef / Lamb / Fish / Squid and Shrimp
No salmon.
No prawns.
No crabs.
There are many ways for you to cook them proteins and vegetables.
Steamed / Grilled / Baked / Boiled
I usually marinated my chicken / beef / lamb with rosemary, lemon, salt and pepper and BBQ sauce.  Read the contents, as some BBQ sauce has no sugar, so I bought and used that.
And as for the fish, I like to wrap mine in tin foil, stuffed together with salt, pepper, lemon, asparagus, chilli flakes and asam keping.  Oh the juice was just heavenly yummehhh.
Warm beef or chicken soup is simply the best and easiest to make too.

Like me, similar with Redmummy, I too have that magical pan, where I can put everything, both vege and proteins into it and leave it to cook.
Advisable that you cook several types of dishes and store them up in containers for easy grab and go.

How and When to eat them?
Lunch and Dinner only.
Yes, twice a day.
So, what do you do when you're hungry?
Eat fruits, and drink water.
Drink. Drink. Drink lots of plain water.
Munch. Munch. Munch on the fruits.
I usually cut 2 bijik fruits in the morning, sprinkle some salt and put it in zip lock bag to work.
I took some as breakfast and the rest as tea.
Another fruit I ate at night, as supper.
Because of this diet, this was my first time buying avocados.  Really! Haha..
Tea?
Coffee?
Yeah sure you can take them but NO SUGAR.
And remember, this does not count as part of your water intake.
You still need that minimum 3L plain water.
Supplements, yes, during this phase, I took B-Complex and Vitamin-C everyday to keep me energised.  
You should take supplements too.
The first 4 days of your diet, you will be the toilet most regular visitor.
Dont be shy, you must go and pee.
And you will sweat like you've been doing the marathon.
This shows that your body is reacting to the new diet regime.
So be happy! 
Although you felt like wanting to eat a horse, control yourself, and keep muching the fruits.
It'll get better during the 5th day.

On day 14, try the only apples day. 
This means whole day, no food, except just SEVEN bijik green apples.
And water water water.
Sounds impossible.  But it is doable.
One day only. Detox day.
In the case that you don't like green apples, yeah, sure, red apples are cool.  But take just FIVE bijik.
Beef pepperoni and rosemary baked chicken, with fresh garden salad, capsicum, avocado, lemon squeeze, salt and pepper

The following 25 days : (Day 26th - Day 50th)
No carbs
No sugar
Yeah, stop whining already!
Still, must not gobble the proteins skin and fats.
And continue to weight the food intake too. 
But, you can start taking your proteins and veges in the form of fried, curry, masak lemak and asam pedas! 
Hooray!
See, I told you it will get better.

On Day 30th, you need to puasa makan (fasting).
Only drink and drink water from morning, till 6pm.
Take your dinner with a proper steak / lamb chop and vegetable.
This is your reward day!
Yeah, there's such thing as reward too.
And I took mine at Victoria Station, of course.
Day 51, you are done!
You can take the carbs and sugar back.
And you can stop measuring your food intake.
But I will guarantee you that you will do eat gradually and with grace.
Why? Because of all the weight you have lost, silly!
You will not gonna let all those effort go to waste.

I have lost a total of 8kg in 50 days.
I believe I was lucky because of the timing.
I started my diet near the Sya'aban month, and joining the Ramadhan, so it was pretty easy for me as I got to enjoy food like normal during the Syawal month.
If you asked me, I did not perform any exercise during my diet.
Well, just some daily sit ups and star jumps in the morning before shower, but that's just it.
However, I started afterwards.
After I completed the 50 days.
Then I started doing morning walks / jogs on alternate days.
Not much, just 3 rounds around the neighborhood, totaling to almost 2km each.
Maintain the 3L water intake.
And shed another 3kg in the next 30 days.

You have to remember that this is a healthy diet plan.
Not a crash diet
Do not exceed the timeline period.
25 days, first phase.
25 days, second phase.
If you wish to start again first phase, you need to wait after another 25 days of normality.
This means that you can't do the no carbs, no sugar, no oil, for more than one month.
Because this is not healthy for the body.

Always remember that there's no such thing as cheat day.
You have had your cheat day the rest of your lives, so this time, stick to it till the phase is over.
Oh, do weigh yourself every morning as soon as you wake up from sleep, everyday of this diet.
Thats the best time to measure yourself.
Not before bedtime.

So thats all of my secrets.
Which no longer a secret.
Determination is the key.
It's all up to you.
Still maintain my fruits intake, but now I can dip it in chocolate.. wuhuu!

20 Facts About Myself

Sooner or later, I may have to close this blog.
It's already September and I'm not even blogging monthly anymore.
Getting lazier by the minute.
I have forgotten the real reason for this blog.
I used to be very passionate about life and love to share it with everybody.
And this blog is used to record them.
So that I will not forget.
So that my kids will not forget.


Anyway, I've been tagged by @kerengga_kurus from instagram for this challenge;
20 Facts About Myself. 
So, get your buckets/ pail & ready to puke, coz here are the facts about me that all paparazzi are dying to know. 
  1. I believe in channeling positive vibe to myself therefore i picked the nickname jelita78 in 1998, assuming that i am gorgeous. (Sila muntah sekarang) *jelita is a Malay word which means beautiful person.
  2. I was too naive & used the nick cokecool in IRC era without realising that it has similar slang to drug usage. 
  3. I had 7 boyfriends & married the 8th 
  4. I saved Le-hubby from the headache & suspense of proposing to me from the top of the Eiffel. I went ahead & started our wedding preparation. (Giller nak kawen, boleh? It's actually pure instinct jodoh laa konon) 
  5. I watched Titanic in cinemas for 7 times. 
  6. I have a dream of pursuing masters & want to study in UK. I applied the recent Pasca Mara but failed. 
  7. I wanted to become an MAS stewardess, to travel around the world but i was way too sexy for their slit-kebaya-skirt.
  8. I am ever so grateful to have performed the Hajj with my parents at the age of 23. Now i wish to go again with Le-hubby. 
  9. Le-hubby said i looked like anak-orang-asli when I was 4-6yo in the old family album. Thus i consider myself the living proof of the ugly duckling (dipersilakan utk muntah lagi) 
  10. When i was 7-8yo, i wore the petticoat (kain dalam) just like a normal skirt because the laces trim are just so pretty. Yeah, believe me when i claimed that i was actually the muse for Versace. 
  11. I dressed like a tomboy beginning of highschool and i hated high heels. I only started wearing them to work. 
  12. I was a pramaholic a.k.a stroller addict. I have bought & sold about 40 pieces of strollers/ car seats. I am a member of the strollersandprams forum & have made several stroller reviews. Go check them out if you ever interested in strollers. 
  13. I have a blog but haven't updated it much lately. It's jelita78.blogspot.com incase you want something to put you to sleep.  
  14. I have bought & sold more than 120 handbags since y2007. Currently i own only 20. I'm an ebayer & a mudah.my user. Feel free to look at my great pre-loved bargains under the same nick; jelita78.
  15. My first branded handbag was Coach Hamptons Business Tote Carryall bought by Le-hubby in y2007. Little did he knew this was whats triggered my bag addiction. 
  16. I buy multiples of something that i adored, i.e; Coach Madison Sabrina Satchel which i ended up buying SEVEN of them but in different colours. And JovianRTW kurung modern that i ended up with more than THIRTY pieces at once. 
  17. I own two pairs of Christian Louboutin pumps but my feet couldn't find comfort in them. Never should have bought it in the first place. Now sayang nak jual pulak. 
  18. I have queued for a Birkin bag at Hermes KL boutique a few years back. I have received the call. But i am nowhere affordable for it. I'm just thrilled to be in the list & to experience how the system works. I have in the end managed to buy something Hermes. It's the necktie. Still something from the orange house to be excited about. 
  19. I posses the supermom powers of folding clothes & packing for trips. Yeah, i think i want more kids too. 
  20. I finally managed to fit back into my 11years old wedding outfits last week. After loosing 11kg from HCG diet. Did the no sugar, no carbs and no oily foods for almost 60 days since the month of Sya'ban. This is my greatest achievement considering that i am a chocolate slave and i love baking cakes! Now, to maintain the weight, is another challenge. Glad that my latest heartthrob has initiated the #fitmalaysia campaign,terus semangat nak exercise. 
Hah. 
Thats it! 
I'm done! 
Wow! Such a lengthy post indeed. 
Hmmm facts # 21. I definitely have way too much to say about myself. LOL.

Hope that you enjoyed getting to know me.
Would love to get to know you back.
So, please tag me once you have done yours.

It has been concluded..

After 16 days of search and rescue..

PM NAJIB RAZAK’S PRESS STATEMENT ON MH370

This evening I was briefed by representatives from the UK Air Accidents Investigation Branch (AAIB). They informed me that Inmarsat, the UK company that provided the satellite data which indicated the northern and southern corridors, has been performing further calculations on the data. Using a type of analysis never before used in an investigation of this sort, they have been able to shed more light on MH370’s flight path.

Based on their new analysis, Inmarsat and the AAIB have concluded that MH370 flew along the southern corridor, and that its last position was in the middle of the Indian Ocean, west of Perth.

This is a remote location, far from any possible landing sites. It is therefore with deep sadness and regret that I must inform you that, according to this new data, flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean.

We will be holding a press conference tomorrow with further details. In the meantime, we wanted to inform you of this new development at the earliest opportunity. We share this information out of a commitment to openness and respect for the families, two principles which have guided this investigation.

Malaysia Airlines have already spoken to the families of the passengers and crew to inform them of this development. For them, the past few weeks have been heartbreaking; I know this news must be harder still. I urge the media to respect their privacy, and to allow them the space they need at this difficult time.

Dirt, is kids' best friend




No matter how loud you yelled at them, it's just illogical to stop them from doing what they love most when we're back at kampung tok.



No matter rain or shine, nothing can stop them.



Glad that we still have a place called kampung where the kids can be themselves and living life to the fullest.

It's THORtastic!

Cz22 just reminded me that I forgot to blog about this.
About the recent film THOR- The Dark World.
About this man!
Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

No, not Loki.
But this guy, Fandral.
Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

What?
U don't know who?
Oh you have got to be kidding me!!
Fandral is one of Thor's ally and is part of the Warrior Three.
Have a closer look.
Can you guess why I am drop dead hyper?
Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

It's Zachary Levi!
The Chuck guy.
Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

Going fully blonde here, in THOR!
Yeah, seriously, I wouldn't have noticed him if hubby didn't pointed it out to me!
Which then I ended up focusing on Fandral more than Thor, and wishing for his scene to appear longer.

Can't wait for the Blueray to come out. Then I can pause, and drool.
